I’ve never really considered a trip to Brazil, but this particular Brazilian archipelago is pretty cool-looking. Fernando de Noronha lies about 200 miles off the coast of Brazil. The islands are actually what you can see of an underwater mountain range. It has lovely beaches and scuba diving opportunities. And the towering mountains are pretty cool to see.

Today in history:

  • 1898 – Actor/singer Paul Robeson was born.
  • 1901 – Actor Paul Willis was born. He was one of the best known child actors of the silent era.
  • 1903 – Actor Ward Bond was born. He’s probably best remembered for his role in the TV series Wagon Train.
  • 1939 – Opera singer Marian Anderson sang at the Lincoln Memorial, after she was denied the right to sing at the Daughters of the American Revolution’s Constitution Hall. For the sin of being black. :roll: Not the DAR’s finest moment.

On TV tonight: Hawaii Five-O and a Titanic special on NatGeo

Reading: I’m currently re-reading Unnatural Death by Dorothy L Sayers which is the third Lord Peter Wimsey book.

  1. It’s pretty, but still have no desire to visit Brazil.

  2. Never really wanted to visit Brazil, but the pictures are gorgeous. While the DAR definitely commited a foul deed it seems fitting that she sang at the Lincoln Memorial.
    Hope your book is good!
